1982 Ford Mustang

In 1982, Ford decided it was time to give power to the people. The 1982 Ford Mustang had many more powerful engine options than it had seen for quite some time. The 302 V8 was back, and mostly better than ever. Now known as the 5.0-liter HO (High Output) engine, it was capable of 157 horsepower.

Ford also gave us back the GT. Appropriately sporty in appearance with spoilers and a hood scoop, the GT's 3.3-liter I6 could reach about 91 horsepower.
